Styled Around a Small Floral Detail

Today’s look was created around the tiniest detail in the entire outfit—the studs. What can I say? These earrings might be tiny, but they are mighty chic.

Tube top—H&M (now just $2)

Scarf—J.Crew (on sale)

Pants—Loft (on sale)

Shoes—J.Crew (on sale)

Earrings—℅ Luxe Caribe Handmade Jewelry

The studs, handmade in St. Kitts by Davina of Luxe Caribe Handmade jewelry, are created using dried Bougainvilleas and silver flakes that are pressed in a resin mound. I’m literally wearing a piece of St. Kitts today. I’ve got so much respect for talented and creative folks like Davina.

A close look at my Luxe Caribe studs.
The fuchsia color you see are the petals of Bougainvilleas found in St. Kitts.

I was so inspired by the beautiful combination of fuchsia and silver in the earrings that I pulled together some pieces from my wardrobe to complement the studs. White ankle pants. A black and white stripe tube top worn under a purple blouse. My Elsie jacquard pumps in a midnight floral print. And, an infinity scarf in the same midnight floral print.

I was so dedicated to tying everything in this look to the fancy floral earrings that even my lip color, Mac Asian Flower, a fuchsia purple lipstick with lots of shine, was chosen to effortlessly blend right in.

I’m going to be styling another pair of Luxe Caribe earrings soon. In the meantime, stop by the Luxe Caribe Facebook page to see more of Davina’s designs. Just so you know, there are bracelets too.

In case you missed it, there’s a mega accessories sale going on at J.Crew right now. The scarf I’m wearing is under $10 now. The matching Elsie pumps have been steeply discounted too.
